- Before starting the process, void your bladder to eliminate the need to urinate during the workout. Resist the urge to urinate until after the final weigh-in.
- Weigh yourself naked with any fluid/nutrition you plan to consume during the workout. This is easily done by stepping on a scale with your full water bottles.
- Exercise at your predicted race intensity between one and two hours.
- Get naked again, towel yourself off, and re-weigh yourself with whatever is left of your nutrition, even if you’re just holding empty bottles, that weight needs to be accounted for.
